“Fools ignore complexity. Pragmatists suffer it. Some can avoid it. Geniuses remove it.”— Alan Perlis
To say your IT environment is complex would be a massive understatement. You have a large team of onsite and distributed employees to look after, working on a variety of devices. Your data is all over the place, being stored in flash, cloud and local drives. And on top of it, the threat landscape is becoming increasingly sophisticated by the day, you have to constantly pivot to steer clear of new threats.
If you don’t find a way to gain visibility and control over your IT environment, and soon, your business could fall victim to a costly cybersecurity attack.
Rest assured, your business is not alone in facing this problem. A recent study from Citrix shows how 83 percent of organizations believe they are most at risk for a cyberattack due to organizational complexities. Seventy-nine percent of respondents said they are worried about security breaches involving high-value data. And 81 percent say there is risk from their inability to control employees’ devices and applications.
What’s more, 75 percent claim their organization is not fully prepared to deal with the potential security risks resulting from the Internet of Things (IoT).
The scary part is that your business is still growing! There’s no telling how big your organization will be a year or two from now, meaning there could be hundreds of more endpoints to look after, accounts to protect and data to manage.
So don’t wait any longer to get a grip on your IT environment. Consult with a managed services provider (MSP) that can help form a custom cybersecurity strategy for your business. An MSP can provide the guidance, oversight and support that is necessary for organizing your IT environment. Organization, after all, is a core component of security. You can’t overcome cyberthreats if you have limited visibility and control over your network.
